Half Term Competition

For our Half Term competition get the little ones to make a pumpkin seed mosaic - it’s a great way to make use of your pumpkin insides!


Seeds can be brightened up with food colouring, or left natural. You can use PVA to stick your seeds down, perhaps to a paper plate. Or make a temporary piece of artwork by arranging them in the garden, on the beach, on the kitchen table - anywhere!

Take a photo and post it online using the hashtag #pumpkinseedcompetition and we’ll choose a winner next week.


Open to under 16s. Win this beautiful Sea Stamps set, artist’s pad and free family entry to the Grotto (total value £35).

With thanks to Science Tansy for the lovely mosaic photo.
